Illustrative experiments are used to explain resonance and the supercritical or subcritical
states of a vibrating system. Six shafts of different lengths and diameters are available. The
shafts can be mounted on four self-aligning ball bearings and fitted with a mass disk to
construct a Laval rotor. The axial positions are read on a scale mounted parallel to the shaft.
A three-phase motor drives the shaft via a flexible coupling. The electronically controlled
speed can be selected via two potentiometers and is continuously variable. It is displayed
digitally. A transparent protective cover and safety bearing ensure safe operation.
The measured values can be displayed and analyzed on a PC using the optional system for
data acquisition.
